A Look at Decorating Trends for the 2011 Holidays
Before you know it trick-or-treaters will be knocking at your door and, soon to follow will be hungry friends and relatives anxious for the Thanksgiving feast. It’s time to start thinking about how you will decorate your home for the holidays. To help you stay away from ending up with a tasteless conglomeration of clashing colors and inflatable Santas, here is some advice from Annie Huston, co-founder of Columbine Design Landscape Professionals, on how to achieve classic decor for the 2011 holiday season.
You can never go wrong with sticking to classic red and green or silver and gold. Eco-friendly decorations will be particularly popular this year, so we can expect to see innovative interior decor made out of metal, knits and driftwood. Large, oversized ornaments will be a trend again this year for indoor decor and three-dimensional ornaments for outside. The best way to approach it, as Annie says, is to aim for decor that can stay up even after the holidays and into the start of the New Year. In order to do this, use an elegant white, grey/blue color scheme and only add silver and gold accents for the actual holidays.
